OVERVIEW

All the power and ability of a huge multi-effects board crammed into a compact "Pandora's" box.

The first-generation Pandora, which appeared in 1995, was a revolutionary product that packed an amazing amount of functionality into a unit the size of a cassette tape, overturning all expectations of multi-effect units. Subsequently, it has continued to evolve to meet the needs of a wide range of users, adding "REMS" modeling technology and enhanced rhythm functionality. Now in 2013, the latest unit in the Pandora Series is a stomp-box type unit.

Although it looks like a compact effect unit in a die-cast body, it's actually a multi-effect unit that contains 158 types of modeling effects; seven of which, you can use simultaneously. Two hundred preset programs include many well-known signature sounds as well as 100 rhythm patterns that cover a diverse range of styles. There's also an auto tuner with an eye-catching LED meter that's easy to read. You can also enjoy jam sessions by connecting your MP3 player to the AUX input, which provides a +/-1 octave pitch shift function. The freely downloadable PC editor/librarian makes it easy to create and manage sounds. Whether used on its own, or alongside your pedal board, the Pandora Stomp delivers exactly what you need for practice and recording at home or on stage.

    Comments about Korg Pandora Stomp Multi Effect Processor/Tuner:

    I've had the Korg Pandora Stomp for over a week and i almost sent it back twice but it's still here. There's much to recommend, and still room for improvement but Korg has put a lot into a small inexpensive unit. I wanted a single stomp box for all effects that would allow me to create sounds with my computer, and store them on a small footprint and of the two choices i found i tried the Korg. I've been using Guitar Rig and my computer for years, but i wanted to get the computer out of the live rig while maintaining the amount of sound tailoring and flexibility the computer allows me. The Korg's Sound Editor program is no Guitar Rig. In fact i think partnering with Guitar Rig or Amplitube would be the perfect marriage for this thing. The Sound Editor program is possible the Korg's weakest link. The sounds are passable, never great, and i'm always wishing there was one more adjustment i could make. You can't re-arrange the signal chain - it's Dynamics/Amp/Cabinet/Mod/Delay/Reverb/NR/Level. I'd love to see a final stage EQ or preamp, but it's not there. And if you use Dynamics to set, say a pickup type, or wah setting, you have no compression because you've used up your Dynamics choice. So i tweak, and settle. Same with the foot switch. There are 3 choices: 1) Turns on a selected patch. 2) Toggles thru 4 selected Patches that were assigned to the 4 A/B/C/D buttons and 3) Toggles thru 10 patches selected in any one of the 4 A/B/C/D buttons. There's no way to go to the previous patch without dialing it up on the unit. There's no way to toggle a single effect within your patch for a solo boost. Again i am tweaking and settling and finding a way to make it work. On the other hand there's the reason i haven't sent it back. It's powered by any of 3 choices Battery/USB/AC adapter (not included), it weighs 1 pound, it's the size of a small stomp box, and i can program 200 of my own sounds and slip it into a gig bag. So it's still here and i'm tweaking.

    Comments about Korg Pandora Stomp Multi Effect Processor/Tuner:

    You get a lot in this well made effect peddle!
    Inline Tuner, Drum rhythms/metronome, Effects(all customizable), and personal amp. It's worth every penny!
    I've just spent a couple hours with this unit and had a blast. I simply plugged in my guitar and headphones in the back and jammed away. Both my bass and Strat sounded great through it. The tuner is very nice to use, simply hit the foot switch. The drums/metronome is great for everyone to practice with. The effects are pretty nice. Sound is not perfect, but you can adjust everything to get the sound you like. A nice surprise that isn't mentioned is that you don't need an amp. With the headphone jack and volume control on the back, you just plug your guitar in and go!!!
    Thanks Musicians Friend for getting this to me in < 3 business days for FREE, and a great deal to boot. Fantastic service as always. You're the best!

    Amazing Deep Tones for Thrash

        Comments about Korg Pandora Stomp Multi Effect Processor/Tuner:

        There are deep distortion tones in this solid state device that rival the dual rectifier. Try out the "Trooper" and "Slipnot" (without the "k") settings. You can tweak these sounds to your liking. I have the guitar pocket amp version and just ran it through a Klipsch iPod speaker and this thing is sick. It is comparable to my Hughes & Kettner Attax tube preamp and that is difficult to achieve.

        Comments about Korg Pandora Stomp Multi Effect Processor/Tuner:

        While this pedal does offer a wide variety of classic tones and effects it's major drawback is a lack of control over the parameters of the effects.That aside,the tones range from warm and glassy cleans to punchy and focused drives/distortions.The bypass/tuner function is handy and as reliable as all Korg tuners.All in all it makes for a convenient way to simplify a pedalboard.

            was hoping to use this on my pedalboard for effect patches on songs that needed them but the signal was degraded to the amp even in bypass mode that I could not get the tones I was looking for, still a nice product for practice, drum patches are usable, pitch control mode is great for learning. nice for silent practice with headphones.

                  Love this pedal! Compact enough to always bring along to cover special needs. Tuner works great and the patches and tuner are easy to see. I didn't care for most of the canned patches... my liking is for more subtle effects, but programming is easy and the software makes this a breeze. I can now add a chorus, phaser, wah, or other effect without having to keep a dedicated pedal for the one song or two that I use these sounds. And I like that 4 of the sounds are instantly available to me.

                  Comments about Korg Pandora Stomp Multi Effect Processor/Tuner:

                  I purchased this because I play in a working band that does shows for weddings/corporate events/festivals, etc. I also run sound for the band and I usually do not use an amplifier on stage. So, I'm always looking for ways to have good sound with minimal equipment. I own a Pandora 4XB which worked alright until the plastic pieces broke and now it sits in the rehearsal studio. For live work, I usually switch between a BDDI, VTBass or go direct to the board. I heard about the Pandora Stomp and decided to give it a try. Immediately, I liked the fact that it is a metal case. Crucial for live work IMO. The Stomp has both guitar and bass presets in it. Obviously, it has more guitar presets than bass presets. As a bassist, that doesn't really bother me because with my Pandora 4XB, that had numerous effects I never used anyway. I use generally two different sounds for live work. The Stomp allows me to create 4 different presets that I can switch simply by pressing the metal button. So, I created 4 I would use. I will say though, the preset sounds it comes with definitely need some editing. Go to the Korg website and download the editor. Very easy to use and setup sounds you want. Once I did that, I was pretty happy with my 4 sounds. I used it last night at the gig for the first time, and it worked flawlessly. Big, easy to read tuner, all four presets switched quickly and efficiently. If you are a heavy effect user, I can't say how this would work for you because that's not how I use mine. But for a compact sound generator for my bass, I'm pretty happy with it. FYI, if you're going to use it for live work, invest in an AC adaptor. 9volts are expensive and prone to fail when you don't want them too. I use the Stomp with my One Spot and had no problems.
